NWOAHM: Superjoint Ritual – A Lethal Dosage of American Hatred
It’s safe to say that a lot of metalcore bands were inspired by Pantera at some time. Introducing ‘groove metal’, a much more melodic and playful approach of sludge/metal/hardcore, they conquered a lot of teenage hearts who would later on become the generation that would bring metalcore to the bigger audience. Of course, Phil Anselmo couldn’t be left out with his straight to the edge metalcore sensation Superjoint Ritual. Their album ‘A Lethal Dosage of American Hatred’ is a very undervalued masterpiece in my opinion. They did surf on the ‘New Wave’ but they didn’t have ambition to become the next big thing. Cool record to check out though.
